With a strong belief that its employees are an invaluable asset in successfully reaching its longer term organisational goals, de Poel wanted to harness the talent that existed in the organisation.
de Poel committed to identifying those employees with the desire and potential to be their leaders of the future, and investing in their professional development.
Without pre-determining who would work towards which specific future leadership role, this would develop leadership capability and maturity in readiness for future positions and ideally build loyalty. It would create a new tier of people operating in a more strategic way who are familiar with working collaboratively across the business, and with greater business acumen.
It also provides role models for other aspiring leaders, and demonstrates talent will be valued and rewarded within de Poel.
